Alright I have a Marshall DSL 401 and have a... well two small problems.

1) It seems like a really bright amp. I cranked it up all the way( :headbang initially with the treble 4 mid 6 and bass 9. It seemed really bright so i went to treble 3 mid 3/4 and bass 10. Was it modeled off the original Super Lead Plexi? Does any one else think this amp is bright?

2) How should I go about achieving that marshall "crunch" sorta EVH style at low volumes( you get the crunch at high volumes and the sustain and compression). Should it go High Output master volume, Low overdrive channel volume or vice-versa. Help.

Any help Would be greatly appreciated.

Am sorta, but MArshalls are known for a bright voicing i.e Brittish.
I would use the clean channel as my crush (because with Gain up and master vol its pretty nice and crunchy!!)

that crunch in marshalls comes from power amp OD, the only way to get it at low volumes is with an attenuator. and some are brighter than others, which model do you have?

A Dual Super Lead (DSL) all-valve 40W Marshall DSL401 Combo Amp .

EDIT: So the power amp Dist. Would come from keeping the Master volume high?

roll some of the treble off your guitar,

as for the crunch at low volumes, either get a volume block or whatever their called or a stomp box

i've had my eye on the mesa boogie line, my price range is under $600.

maybe you could buy a picture of one for 600, and just pretend for awhile...
